In a surprise, Chris Jericho defeated Kevin Owens to win the United States championship at the WWE Payback pay-per-view (PPV) last night (April 30, 2017) in San Jose. Jericho then said goodbye to Monday Night Raw in a way only he can while we were all left wondering how this happened.
Owens gives us his answer:
What happened last night is disgusting and unfair. Jericho let his inner U.S. citizen side take over and cheated to steal my title. @WWE— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) May 1, 2017
Yeah, that’s definitely it.
Judging by my mentions, it seems not all Americans are a lost cause. As the #TheFaceOfAmerica, I am hopeful. Now, everyone...leave me alone.— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) May 1, 2017
